So, I have to admit this is the first time this has happened to me, but I tiled my background image, and layered the same papers on top (not tiled obviously) and completed my layout. When saving my page as a JPEG, the file did not tile the background. the picture shows up as the regular, original background, no tiling, however, in the actual layout in Scrapbookmax, it is shown as tiled. Not sure how to fix this or if anyone else had this issue before.
Thanks for your help!
